Seclusion and pampering are ensured at this small inn hidden along a side road on Bahía de Soliman. You may want to hide away in one of the elegant suites with private terraces and plunge pools, sipping the complimentary wine and nibbling on chocolates while gazing at the sea from your puffy white draped bed. Even the suites that don’t face the sea are blissful, and the relatively inexpensive small double rooms buried beneath the palms are fine if you’re happy outdoors most of the time. And why wouldn't you be? The hotel stands beside one of the coast’s most beautiful bays, so clear you can watch sea creatures floating about without even stepping into the shallow water. A reef protects the bay from the winds and is so close you can kayak there to snorkel. One private five-bedroom villa is also available for rent. The Sahara restaurant blends Indonesian and other Asian touches with fine Italian cuisine, along with seafood and a few Mexican dishes. It’s open to non-guests and is a lovely spot for lunch overlooking the bay.
